San Marino Bans Anti-LGBT Discrimination

You can no longer be discriminated by your Sexual Orientation!

San Marino, the smallest country in Europe, bans anti-lgbt discrimination, which means you cannot be discriminated based on your sexual orientation anymore.

Back in 2004, the country had decriminalized homosexuality and in November, the country passed civil laws for same-sex couples, making this step a new path to equality. Located in the Italian Peninsula, the citizens voted, on Sunday (June 2) to ban any type of discrimination based on the sexual orientation.

This new ban is now an amendment to their Article 4, and now includes a clause among all the specifications on which the principle of equality is applied before the law “ Without discrimination on base of sexual orientation’ and will be part of the article, making San Marino the eleventh country worldwide to ban discrimination based on sexual orientation”

“Incredible success should serve as a symbol and a warning outside the borders of San Marino” said Marco Tonti of the LGBT+ group Arcigay Rimini, “We congratulate the Republic for this landmark step, especially considering that homosexuality was criminalized in San Marino until 2004.”

“We do so with pride and happiness of having helped bring about evolution…”
